Bill Nye's Funniest Thoughts


Published February 22, 2013


LibriVox recording of Bill Nye's Funniest Thoughts, by Bill Nye.
Read by Phil Chenevert

Bill Nye was a famous American humor columnist in the middle 1800's. He said "We can never be a nation of snobs so long as we are willing to poke fun at ourselves." And he did exactly that in hundreds of newspaper columns that were later collected into books. This is a selection of just 35 of the most humorous, wry and downright funny cogitations of his, written of course in the somewhat convoluted style common in the 19th century which just adds to their flavor in my opinion. The selection process was rigorous: only those that made me laugh, giggle or snort are included. (Summary by phil Chenevert)

Subject: better than most
I don't remember a whole lot either, but I DO REMEMBER that it was certainly funnier than most stories that are called "funny".
?You want something funnier than usual? This is it, AND, "Dere Mable", something like that, available here.
Reviewer: Timothy Ferguson - - April 3, 2013
Subject: Well read, but slight
I write my reviews in once a month, and beyond thinking that the reader did an excellent job and has an accent which suits the material excellently, I cannot remember this work at all, despite having listened to it not two weeks since. I presume this means that, for me, it did not strike home at all.
